      In collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs, a team at Oak Ridge National Laboratory has expanded a VA-developed predictive computing model to identify veterans at risk of suicide and sped it up to run 300 times faster, a gain that could profoundly affect the VA’s ability to reach susceptible veterans quickly. The model, called the medication possession ratio algorithm, creates individualized summaries of veterans’ medication patterns. It helps clinicians pinpoint veterans with inconsistent medication usage who may have a higher risk of attempting suicide.

    More than 6,000 veterans died by suicide in 2016, and from 2005 to 2016, the rate of veteran suicides in the United States increased by more than 25 percent.

    Suicide prevention is the US Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA’s) highest priority—so much so that in recent years, the VA has started using predictive models and advanced informatics to identify at-risk veterans. One such model, called the medication possession ratio algorithm, creates individualized summaries of veterans’ medication patterns, such as which medications a veteran is prescribed and how often those prescriptions are filled. The model helps clinicians pinpoint veterans with inconsistent medication usage patterns—these veterans are known to have a higher risk of attempting suicide in the next month.

    In a collaborative project with the VA, a team at the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has taken the model and engineered the expanded version of it to run 300 times faster, gaining an unprecedented speedup that might have a profound effect on the VA’s ability to reach susceptible veterans quickly.

    “Veterans should be following the medication regimens prescribed by their doctors,” said Edmon Begoli, principal investigator on the project and director of the Scalable Protected Data Facilities (SPDF) at the National Center for Computational Sciences at ORNL. “If they are attempting to increase certain medications, they could be at risk of substance dependency, and if they stop taking medications like antidepressants or opioids, it could put them at risk of withdrawal or other adverse effects that could, in the worst case, lead to suicide.”

    Until now, the medication possession ratio calculations have been limited in scope. The model has typically included only active psychotropic medications, such as narcotics or mental health medications, and covered a narrow class of the total veteran population in the Veterans Health Administration(VHA) database. This simplified version of the algorithm took 4 hours to run on the VA’s resources.

    The ORNL team sped up the algorithm and also increased its coverage to all current medications, as well as recent past prescriptions and all 9 million veterans in the database. Without the speedup, the expanded version of the model would have taken 75 hours to run. With the speedup, it runs in only 15 minutes, a 300-fold improvement.

    “Now we can observe and reach a much larger population that’s potentially at risk—and look at even more risk factors,” Begoli said. “The potential to provide far greater predictive services is there.”

    Saving lives one chart at a time

    In 2007, the Joshua Omvig Veterans Suicide Prevention Act was passed, requiring the VA to establish a comprehensive suicide prevention program. As part of this program, the VA implemented a Veterans Crisis Line that connects veterans who call in to a hotline with a qualified crisis responder.

    To provide brief and targeted overviews of veterans’ medication histories, the VHA worked with the Veterans Crisis Line to establish the medication possession ratio algorithm for use in the crisis center.

    “When you’re on the phone with a distressed veteran, it’s very difficult to do a detailed chart review with a medical record,” said Jodie Trafton, the director of the VA Program Evaluation and Resource Center in the VHA Office of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention. “We worked with the crisis line staff to build a report that would summarize all the key elements they would look for in a medical record, so they could enter a patient’s information, and it would provide them the relevant items in a nice, simplified format.”

    Soon, the VHA began running the medication possession ratio algorithm once a day to guide clinicians working with potentially high-risk patients in providing treatments tailored to their personal risk factors. The crisis line responders at the VHA could access the results via clinical dashboards, identify the veterans who needed special assistance, and quickly determine whether they were on the phone with a veteran at risk.

    “Veterans who are calling the crisis line are often very desperate,” Begoli said. “Veterans may be calling because they’re running out of a diabetes medication, experiencing a life crisis, or having mental health issues. The opportunity here is to find out, during calls, whether veterans are eligible for benefits they might not be aware of, so we can, in some cases, recover a person from an almost certain path to suicide.”

    Initially, running the model took about 4 hours, and the VHA was limited in the information it could include. One option was to run the algorithm for only 1 of the 18 geographic regions in the system, significantly reducing the number of veterans in the model. The other option was to limit the number of medications analyzed.

    “The VHA was faced with the dilemma of not having the budget, the staff, or the expertise to really dig into and properly analyze the massive amount of health data in its system,” said Jeremy Cohen, ORNL SPDF program manager and program manager for the VA project.

    ORNL already had a small accredited environment that could house protected health information, so the VA leveraged the opportunity to partner with the lab.

    The ORNL team scaled the medication possession ratio’s existing algorithms and improved its performance by applying advanced computing techniques for text mining and predictive algorithms. Joshua Arnold, a data scientist working on the project with Begoli and Cohen, played a pivotal role in the project.

    Arnold used a high-performance computing (HPC) platform at ORNL to understand the current algorithm and create a faster version of it that would run in 15 minutes—300 times faster than the 75 hours it would have taken the VA to run the model. Trafton believes the speedup in the model will have a wide impact.

    “This work is crucial because the better our models can be, the better we’ll get at calling the right people at the right time. And the better we are at calling the right people at the right time, the more lives we save,” Trafton said.

    Safeguarding data

    Since the VA came to ORNL, the collaborative team has taken an exceedingly cautious approach to handling veteran data. This careful treatment of the data, along with the team’s success with the medication possession ratio algorithm, has spawned other research activities centered around the model.

    Begoli and Cohen’s team is currently working with Trafton to improve operational aspects of a VA program called REACH VET, or Recovery Engagement and Coordination for Health–Veterans Enhanced Treatment. In this program, health care providers at 141 VA facilities reach out to veterans who may be at risk of suicide. One of the VA’s goals is to implement the revised medication possession ratio algorithm into REACH VET, a task that will require a secure environment such as the one at ORNL.

    “The medication possession ratio is one of our first examples of something that we know is a predictor of a variety of important outcomes,” Trafton said. “If we can use it in our models like REACH VET, we will be able to better identify patients who might try to commit suicide.”

    Additionally, the VA hopes to use ORNL’s algorithm for analysis of the VA’s 3.5 billion clinical notes. Diagnostic codes and dates have been straightforward to input because they are structured, Begoli said, but clinical notes have proved more difficult.

    “There’s no diagnostic code that says, ‘increased suicide risk’ or ‘job loss.’ If a patient reports a death in the family, a transient living situation, or social disconnectedness, we need to be able to identify those factors,” Begoli said. “There’s a massive repository of these risk factors that hasn’t been used for predictive risk models.”

    ORNL’s current accredited environment provides the resources needed for such a task.

    “All of this work is detached from the internet and requires a substantial amount of training and background checks before anyone can even look in and touch the data,” Cohen said. “The security of the data and the protection of the privacy of the veterans are of the utmost importance.”

    It’s one reason why the VA came to ORNL.

    Ramping up to Summit

    Today, ORNL runs the largest mega-biobank in the world for the VA. And although it currently takes months for systems such as the VA’s HPC system at ORNL to mine the VHA’s entire clinical repository, the IBM AC922 Summitsupercomputer at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) could cut these processing times to days or cut the medication possession ratio algorithm’s runtime down to seconds. The OLCF is a DOE Office of ScienceUser Facility located at ORNL.

    In a separate but related project, Begoli and Cohen are specifically working toward gaining accreditation to run analyses of protected health information on Summit to expand the predictive modeling capabilities at ORNL. US government agencies are required to be compliant with the Federal Information Security Modernization Act, or FISMA, a law that implements and supports the IT security standards defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s cybersecurity framework.

    FISMA intrinsically requires a certain amount of security training, testing, network defenses, and data protections for every system that hosts protected health information in the United States. However, in addition to these stringent requirements, a system must also be fully accredited by a third party with an Agency Authority to Operate. Although no supercomputer of Summit’s size has ever been accredited, the team is hopeful it will be able to call Summit the first, making this the most powerful protected data operation in the world.

    “Our ultimate goal would be to enable our operation to be a real-time alert system so that while physicians are interacting with a veteran, they can get live predictive risk alerts and intervene,” Begoli said. “We don’t want veterans to walk into a clinic and get missed because someone hasn’t been specifically trained to recognize these symptoms. We never want it to be too late to reach someone.”
